Fall blooms

Asked November 10, 2017, 8:22 AM EST

I live in Northeastern Oklahoma and it almost mid November. My 1 year old redbud tree has several blooms on it that should be on in spring. It that a bad sign for the tree ?

Environmental stresses such as drought along with lower than normal temperatures during the summer or early fall followed by warmer, rainy weather can sometimes fool a plant into blooming late in the season. No need to worry though; this will not hurt the tree.
